Distance Learning, The Center for Active Engagement and Scholarship, and Extended Learning

Distance Learning

Governors State University provides alternative access to university programs through extended campus courses held at off-campus locations and online courses. Alternative delivery methods provide opportunities for students who need more flexibility in their schedules in order to participate in furthering their education. These courses are scheduled at times and in ways that give the students options. The list of online program opportunities is found at:

Governors State University recognizes that providing service to a diverse clientele over a wide geographic area requires significant levels of off-campus instruction. In support of its outreach efforts, the university offers a selection of degree and professional development courses at numerous locations in the Chicago metropolitan area and the surrounding region. Sequences of courses from undergraduate and graduate degree programs and degree completion opportunities are offered at off-campus teaching sites and online.

Center for Active Engagement and Scholarship (CAES)

The Center for Active Engagement and Scholarship provides support, tutorials, and additional resources to assist both faculty and students in their use of instructional technology software in either face-to-face or online coursework. Instructional designers and support staff provide assistance in online course development aligned with best practice standards.

The School of Extended Learning

The School of Extended Learning (SXL) is committed to helping you conquer your next personal or professional goal. We know that on campus daytime classes just aren’t possible for all students because of work, family, or active military service. SXL programs are designed to meet the educational needs of adults at all ages and every stage of life. Visit their website to learn the full array of SXL offerings.
